I can spell better than you.


His error was more of a grammar error, not spelling. He used "your" instead of the contraction "you're."

The FBI doesn't ask questions it doesn't know the answers to when dealing with a suspect.


False.

It is aka as entrapment.

No, it isn't. Entrapment is encouragement to commit a crime
Asking someone questions is not that. Asking someone questions is encouragement to tell the truth.

Didn’t Trump already ask for Flynn’s resignation for this very reason? It was nearly a year ago anyways.

A resignation is not an exoneration.

Do you think Trump will pardon his good buddy? That "good guy?"

Perhaps. According to Trump Flynn was just doing his job.

Some investigations are "special matters" and some are the
politicized use of Federal Law enforcement.

Flynn was easy pickings for Obama, an easy target.

Not the lying to FBI part, but the dealing with foreign ambassadors regarding foreign policy part.

Obama told Trump to dump Flynn. Allegedly.
Trump fired Yates because she warned him about Flynn. Definitely.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Michael Flynn, the retired general who vigorously campaigned at Donald Trump’s side and then served as his first national security adviser, pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the FBI about reaching out to the Russians on Trump’s behalf and said members of the president’s inner circle were intimately involved with — and at times directing — his contacts.

His plea to a single felony count of false statements made him the first official of the Trump White House to be charged so far in the criminal investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. And his action could be an ominous sign for a White House shadowed for the past year by investigations, turning Flynn into a potentially key government cooperator as prosecutors examine whether the Trump campaign and Russia worked together to influence the 2016 presidential election in Trump’s favor.

Friday’s developments don’t resolve the paramount question of possible Trump-Russia coordination in the campaign, but they do show that Flynn lied to the FBI about multiple conversations last December with the Russian ambassador to the United States. Court papers make clear that senior Trump transition officials were fully aware of Flynn’s outreach to Russian officials in the weeks before the inauguration.


This seems pretty bad to me. I think it will force Trump to resign and Pence will become president.

Contacting? Or dealing with?
The new administration was not in power at the time.

Why did he lie?

You believe Obama would say anything to Trump to help him?

Seriously, he would not. Obama is undone by Trump...

If Trump is undone, it is by no one but Trump. And his personnel selections.

The US Government is not The Apprentice. Reality TV is not real life.

There is the Logan act, but that's probably moot at this point.

Why, do you think, Flynn lied?
